Twitter Reactions: Deepak Hooda, Shivam Mavi shine as India defeated Sri Lanka in thrilling match at Wankhede

The first T20 International (T20I) between India and Sri Lanka turned into an all-out thriller with the hosts beating the visitors by two runs at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium on Tuesday.

Captain Dasun Shanaka kept Sri Lanka in the game and fought hard with his 27-ball, 45-run knockout with three fours and as many sixes, but the Lankans lost momentum shortly after his dismissal.

Debutant Shivam Mavi had a memorable play with the ball as the right arm pacer took a four wicket haul while giving away just 22 runs in his 4 overs quota. The game did go to the wire, where India managed to win the last ball thriller.

While Hooda crushed an unbeaten 41 off 23 deliveries using five boundaries, including four sixes, Axar couldn’t fail on 31 off 20 balls, including three fours and a maximum.
